CrypTEA is a media encryption, file manager and viewer that password protects any sensitive videos, images, source code, files, folders while also encrypts their file-names.


Once encrypted, the files will look like a random bits of data without any way of knowing what type of file it contains. This is a great for storing sensitive information on your computers, NAS storages or in the Cloud.


CrypTEA 2.0 has build-in viewers for most formats and once you enter the password you can directly preview encrypted texts, images, videos and sounds without decrypting them to disk first.


The benefits of Full version:

 Internal secure Text/Code Viewer and Editor

 Image viewer for all common image formats allows you to view encrypted images directly

• NEW Video player allows you to play videos directly from encrypted file

• NEW Audio player allows you to play audio directly from encrypted file

 ….additional features such as adding recovery record to encrypted data.


Many of the encryption tools are either too complex, are not portable, don’t work nicely with NAS and Cloud, don’t have recovery block or don’t allow direct previewing encrypted files without decrypting them first.


Mediachance is presenting our very own file encryption tool that was developed with the goal of combining all the missing features from other security software.

Easy to use, small software, without any dependencies that can run from USB stic if needed Familiar Explorer like interface, with search bar to search file names (both plain-text and encrypted) Multi-layered encryption using research proven strong cipher with random noise seeded algorithm Ability to work directly with files on NAS storages Safe for remote access, CrypTEA files can be uploaded to Cloud just as easy as any other files File names are encrypted so the files don’t advertise their contents, they can be randomly named which allows for having multiple version of the same file or can have static crypto names for single version Industry secure double chained encryption with Robust Error checking and secure delete of files Build-in text, image, video and audio viewers for most common file formats (full version)

CrypTEA - MEDIA Encryption tool and viewer

Why another encryption tool?
Version 2.02 (2MB)

CrypTEA files don’t advertise what they have hidden






In CrypTEA Explorer





In Windows Explorer the encrypted files and folders look anonymous. In the CrypTEA the files will show their original file name (after entering the correct password of course)





Easy to use





Navigate into any folder and use Encrypt or Decrypt. The files in the folder and its sub folders will be encrypted or decrypted in the place. Similarly you can use just a selection of files/folders.





Tips for additional usage
How is CrypTEA different?
Universal Site License
Your Computer sensitive data Protect your files and documents on your computer; such as medical records, confidential letters etc. Even if someone gets access to your computer they will be not able to make heads and tails of those files. Traveling Protecting sensitive files during traveling was the original purpose of our tool. You really never know in which hands your computer may end up, legally or not. With CrypTEA a third party would not able to determine the character of the encrypted files neither from the data itself nor from the file name. CD and DVD backups Those shiny discs get often misplaced or discarded after some time. Encrypt the files so nobody can read those discs should they find it years later. Local area network and NAS The data you store on your LAN attached storages are often accessible to all users on your network. Furthermore many modern NAS allow remote access to your data through the internet. While desktop computer firewalls are designed to keep remote users from accessing your computer, the NAS storage software is actually designed to make this task easier. Encrypting your potentially sensitive data will give you peace of mind. Clouds and other remote data services You really don’t know who is getting access (lawfully or unlawfully) to the data in the Cloud, because it isn’t under your control at all, and your rights to your data may not be what you think they are (read the fine print).  Encrypting data prior transmission will ensure your privacy - not even name can reveal the character of your data. Save your site passwords, credit card numbers, email accounts... Why to use yet another non-portable applications and various password managers or online services to keep your hard to remember data secure if you can simply type them in a text document and then encrypt them. Additionally the full version includes internal Secure text editor that allows you to view and edit encrypted text files directly and without traces. Disallow access to program exe and/or program folders. Again no need for another special software to do that - CryptTEA is perfectly suited to do that. (Note: you need to set administrator privileges to CrypTEA to change files in Program Files folder)

Comparison between Free and Full version

















Highly secure double chain encryption for files and folders

Secure Recovery record (Parity block) If an encrypted file gets damaged, the attached recovery record can be used to restore it.







You can directly view and edit both encrypted and plain text files as well as different source code. The secure editor allows you to save changes into encrypted files directly. All operations are done in memory and it doesn’t leave any traces on the host computer.



Zero Trace Image Viewer




You can view encrypted as well as plain images with the build-in Image Viewer. The viewer works directly in memory and doesn’t leave any un-encrypted file traces on the host computer.



Animated GIF support




Image Viewer has internal support for Animated GIFs.

for WINDOWS ver 2.0
(so you can see how well it works)
Zero Trace Secure Text/Source Code Editor
No backdoors

The topic of backdoors in some popular security tools has been discussed repeatedly and while we have absolutely no knowledge that other tools may or may not have them implemented, we can say for sure that ours doesn’t. The files can be decrypted only with a valid password and the password cannot be in any way reversed or guessed from the data itself.
